Bottle. Pours a cloudy brown with a very thin, light-tan head. Aroma is dominated by sweet, darker malt, with some piney hops underneath. Flavor is super malty, but fairly well balanced by some bitter, piney hops. The near-cloying malt character lasts on the palate. To me, this has more in common with the malty/hoppy variety of harvest and fresh-hop ales than a typical DIPA.
